    This is RID Bruticus.

    As someone else already pointed out, the guy you're thinking of is actually called Ruination.

    Brains & Que from DotM. That fiber optic hair, blech!

    Quite a few toy-only characters from BW look more like monsters than robots to me.
    Nightscream has a horrible robot mode, but I like his beast mode.
    Demolishor the unicycle of doom is especially stupid/ugly looking.
    The kitchen bots in RotF look like they're made out of tinfoil.

    No matter how much I look at him, I still can't tell what the heck is going on with RiD Bruticus. I get it's supposed to be a Cerberus/Dante's Satan type of beast (which SHOULD make him the most bitchin' Transformer ever), but it's just a complete and utter visual mess.

    Well according to his Wiki page he was originally intended to be a Beast Machines Maximal. Also, I've actually seen one in person and it didn't look nearly as bad as it does in that picture. The red is so dark that it almost blends into the black sections making it really difficult to actually see any detail in that picture. He kind of just looks like a turd with some yellow bits. And the yellow bits look really out of place when everything else is so dark. I think they used a promo shot rather than the actual figure as the final version looked a bit better. The yellow isn't so out of place as there is also bright red and blue/purple bits.

    It's still a horrible design as that's pretty much the case with any Beast Machines Maximal. It's the kind of color scheme the Universe line use to crap out. But honestly, I think it could be improved with a much better color scheme. The original promo shot sucked because it's so dark you can't see the detail except for that horrible yellow. The finished version is a bit better but still don't understand why a hell hound is covered in bright yellow plastic. Actually... looking at him again... I don't think of anything got painted. It looks like most of the parts are molded in that color and left unpainted.

    Everytime I see a thread like this 1st thing that pops in my head is g1 brawn.Animation brawn was okay just the toy looked more like a robotic toenail clipper. But if you sum it all up 80% of the bayformers looked bad.Hated it when the legs of a lot of g1 bots were molded as one part.Then again g1 figures came from other lines from late 70's and real early 80's so they were kind of ahead of their time already.

    True.

    I've heard him be called the Michellin man, because of his tire legs.

    Not sure why that one is so ugly... kind of reminds me of Warpath.

    Too bad they couldn't give Silverbolt a cool color scheme.

    I insist in something from the pretenders era, or those ugly repaints from G2.

    For me it is easily NightScream.

    I liked him as a character enough............... But a Transformer with hair...No..I just can't.
